Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to learn”

Monday, the 10th, is the day the whole school goes to Vermont Institute of Natural Science. We want to leave school by 8:20 as soon as the second bus arrives. Make sure you send a snack and lunch for you and your child. Extra juice or water is a good idea. It looks like it is going to be raining. Make sure your child comes in boots, hat and raincoat. Perhaps a chance of clothes i n their backpack. We will return by 3:00. If your child needs a car seat (under 8 years old) and you are not driving, please send one in.

This Sunday at 3 o'clock is the sixth grade performance at Weston Playhouse. See you there. As far as we know there is no admission charge. There will be other schools performing. Mr. PJ's own children performed last year with the Grafton School and he said it was a great time.

Tuesday is field day in the afternoon. Ms. West is planning water games if it is hot outside,so your kids should pack an extra set of dry clothes. If it is really hot they may be comfortable going out in their bathing suits.

Graduation is Wednesday at 6:30. This is a fun time and a chance to honor and say good bye to our 6th graders. All children are encouraged to attend. There will be a bagpipe processional on the way in and out. The graduation class parents decorate the hall and bring the refreshments. See you there.

We have sent home a sheet asking for help with the food for our school picnic. Please return on Monday.

Next Thursday is the last day of school and technically a half day. Parent and drivers will leave to go to Hapgood Pond at 10:00. School is over at 1:00. There will be two lifeguards at the picnic until 1:00. There will be a clipboard with a sign out sheet at the picnic tables. If you leave early, please sign out and write in the names of the kids with you. Once the lifeguards leave we want to make sure we know how many kids are still left there. Children can not stay after 1:00 unless they are with a parent or a designated adult. School staff need to return to school.
